          Good value for money in Margate near beaches

          Very nice and professionally managed guest house with a sea view. Fantastic breakfasts, good facilities, good rooms, nice and clean. A bit hard to find though: numbering in Margate is illogical and you should rather aim for 175 Marine Drive - the guest house is just opposite the "Welcome to Margate" sign as you enter Margate from the south. Don't look for it in town.

          Ocean view, proximity to the beach, selection of restaurants close by.

          We had the most amazing holiday-a real break from the hustle bustle. The ocean view was terrific and the accommodation was good value for money. Sharon and Trevor were always so helpful in all the information that we requested of them. The breakfasts could be a bigger variety, but the service was good and the staff were always accommodating. The position of the B&B was so central for our needs and the different sightseeing was easily accessible. We enjoyed the pool and barbecuing whilst overlooking the sea-what a treat. We will definitely be back.

          chambre magnifique

          nous avons dormi 2 nuits dans ce charmant guest house. Les chambres sont tres spacieuses. Le petit dejeuner est tres copieux avec beaucoup de choix. L'hotel domine l'ocean et il y a une tres belle vue. C'est tres calme.
